Social Visit Times

Prisoners at HMP Thameside book their own visits using an automated system. The prisoner will need to book a visit for you and then call you to tell you when it is.

* New receptions & newly convicted prisoners ONLY.

Reception visits will have to be booked within 30 days of the inmate being held at HMP Thameside. These visits will be booked by the inmate via an app to the Visits or Reception departments. Property may be handed in on a Reception visit but if for any reason this is not done within 30 days, you WILL NOT be able to hand in any property on a standard social visit.

Please Note: if under extreme circumstances you are not able to book or hand in any property within 30 days, Reception and Visits staff will have to be contacted by the inmate and an exception may be made.
